AMPS Agronomy Services
What is happening in your crop, fallow paddock or pasture right now?
If you would like to know that status of your crop, it's growth stage, vigour, nutrition, pests, diseases, weed status etc and don't have an Agronomist, call your local AMPS branch to find out how we can help you. We have full time Agronomists available at most of our branches and also support local private Agronomists to ensure you have access to the best advice for your cropping decisions.
Our Agronomy team have experience across the rain fed and irrigated production of cereals, pulses, oilseeds and cotton as well as having input into extensive and intensive animal production systems.
Regular updates with all our chemical and fertiliser suppliers ensures that our product knowledge is current and continuing to grow as we strive to provide the best crop management advice to optimise the result by tailoring advice to you're specific operation and rotation plan.
Involvement in the planning and implementation of AMPS Research trial protocols and first hand involvement in their production and presentation means AMPS growers have first access through our field days and reviews to world quality research outcomes grounded practically and economically to our local production systems.
